It's all about getting things dry...

This 'Spring' has been pretty chilly and damp, so getting pots dry has been a bit tricky...slow is better than quick, but some pieces are taking forever. Lots of moving pots around and loading up the top of the Rayburn to finish off the drying.
One more bisque firing to go and then I'll be ready to fire the big kiln.

Midgley Green

The lovely folks from Midgley Green @midgleygreen came to our place on Monday to collect the latest selection of pots for their fantastic shop in Clevedon. While we were chatting about the new kiln Seamus took some great images which I wanted to share with you. I am in full making mode at the moment in preparation for the next firing in a couple of weeks time. All being well, the pots from that firing will ready in time for the Contemporary Ceramics Fair at the @hepworthwakefield over the first May bank holiday weekend.

I know I said it last time....but it really has been ages since my last post...


Here are a ton of images of my new kiln and some making process shots. The images of me making are by Ben Boswell a renowned photographer of crafts people. He mainly focuses on Potter and Ceramists.
The images of my new kiln are from the first firing last month, plus a few images of the build.

Just a load of images for you to look at more words at another point........
